Information about The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (Wild Speed X3 Tokyo Drift in Japan) is a 2006 (14 years ago) movie directed by Justin Lin and the third installment of The Fast and the Furious movie series. The movie features an all-new cast and a different setting (Tokyo, Japan) from the previous two films. The movie was shot in Tokyo and in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, the latter often covered with props and lights to create the illusion of the Tokyo style.

Plot

Sean Boswell (Lucas Black), a young man with a talent for auto mechanics, has led a life of getting into trouble. His single mother has had to relocate to different cities with him every time his problems at school or with the local authorities escalate enough. One day, he gets into a street race against the school quarterback. Although the jock drives a Dodge Viper, he is unable to beat Sean who is driving a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Both end up crashing and are subsequently taken to the police station, injured. The incident almost lands Sean in jail, and his mother, deciding not to deal with moving again, sends him to Tokyo to live with his father, stationed in Japan as a U.S. Naval officer. At his private school, Sean meets Twinkie (Bow Wow), a fellow American, who hustles pre-owned goods to their Japanese classmates. Twinkie introduces Sean to the world of drift racing. They later become good friends throughout the film.

Sean soon runs into Takashi (Brian Tee), also known as DK (short for Drift King), and his close friend Han (Sung Kang), who was born and raised in America. Sean is seen by Takashi talking to Neela (Nathalie Kelley), Takashi's girlfriend, and when Takashi tells him to back down, Sean challenges him to a race using Han's car. Takashi wins, and Han's car, a Nissan S15 Silvia, is ruined, so Han tells Sean that he must work for him to repay the car. Sean soon learns that Han is involved in a business partnership with Takashi.

Han becomes Sean's friend, and takes him under his wing after his father kicks him out, teaching him how to drift, and providing him with some financial support. Sean slowly builds a reputation in the drift scene, and befriends Neela, who is also Sean's classmate. She reveals that she, like Sean, was also considered an "outsider" once, not being native to Japan. She explains that she and Takashi grew up together after her mother died. However, after seeing Sean with Neela and learning of their time spent together, Takashi beats Sean up and warns him to stay away from Neela. Angry after seeing Sean's bruises, Neela angrily leaves Takashi, to be with Sean.

Takashi's uncle, Kamata, a high ranking Yakuza (portrayed by Sonny Chiba), told him that there is a discrepancy in the books, and that Han must be cheating them out of money. Takashi confronts Han and his group with this discrepancy, and Han, Sean, and Neela flee before Takashi deals with the money laundering. A car chase ensues through the Tokyo streets, with Takashi chasing Han, and Morimoto chasing Sean. Morimoto tries to wreck Sean, but collides with another car, presumably killing himself. Takashi sees Morimoto's car in a massive car pile up, and catches up to Sean, he tries to wreck Sean; however, he is unsuccessful after Han slows him down. Takashi shoots at Han throughout the chase. Han drives across a junction and is hit by a Mercedes S Class, causing his car to flip over. Han's car starts to leak gasoline from the crash, and Han is unable to move due to injuries. As Sean and Neela finally catch up to Han, the gasoline leaked from the car reaches a nearby fire, triggering an explosion and killing Han. Sean and Neela go back to Sean's father's house, and Takashi comes to take Neela and kill Sean, but Sean's father threatens Takashi with his own gun. Neela voluntarily goes away with Takashi.

Much to Twinkie's dismay, Sean attempts to make amends by appealing to Takashi's uncle, returning the money Han stole and offering to challenge Takashi to an "honor race", a duel where whoever loses is run out of town. The race is on a touge (mountain pass) that Takashi has the advantage on, since he's supposedly the only one to ever make it down to the bottom in one piece. Sean, Twinkie, and Han's crew borrow Sean's father's car, a 1967 (53 years ago) Ford Mustang (7 walls) Fastback, and work on it. Since all the other cars were taken by the police, Sean and his team use the engine from the S15 Silvia Sean had ruined.

After a long race battle, Sean wins the race while Takashi survives a last-minute crash. Takashi's loss causes him to suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of Sean, whom Takashi still considers an "outsider". Takashi's uncle tells Sean he is free to go, and Takashi presumably leaves Tokyo. Neela gets back with Sean.

Later, Sean is the new Drift King and is hanging out in the underground parking lot from earlier in the movie with his girlfriend Neela. Twinkie comes up to Sean, saying someone wants to challenge him, which Sean accepts only after finding out the challenger knew Han. The mystery car driver who pulls up is none other than Dominic Toretto (portrayed by Vin Diesel (4 walls), from the first The Fast and the Furious movie). Toretto and Sean hold a brief conversation, with Toretto saying that Han once rode with him. Neela counts off the race, the cars take off, and the movie ends without disclosing the race results.

Cast

  • Lucas Black as Sean Boswell, a young man interested in street racing. His latest race against the school quarterback leaves his mother no choice but to send him to Tokyo to live with his father. Once there, he meets another American, Twinkie, who introduces him to the world of drift racing. After being confronted by Takashi, or DK (Drift King) for talking to his girlfriend Neela, DK's partner Han Lue gives Sean a car to race him. Sean wrecks the car, but through working to pay Han back, learns how to drift race and steadily rises in the racing scene. Sean becomes friends with both Neela and Han, and Takashi confronts him, warning him to stay away from Neela, but this causes her to stay with Sean instead. After a dangerous chase in which Han is killed, he must race Takashi one final time to settle their score, and wins, becoming the new Drift King.
  • Bow Wow as Twinkie, Sean's first friend he meets in Tokyo, he sells pre-owned goods and introduces Sean to drift racing. After Morimoto, Takashi's close friend, beats him up after he breaks the iPod Twinkie sold him, Sean comes to his defense, giving Morimoto a new one. Twinkie is also a mechanic, though not a street racer, and one of Han's crew who constantly helps Sean out, going so far as to give him money to take to Kamata, so he'll come out alive. At the end of the film, he announces a racer who knew Han wants to race him, implying that they are still friends.
  • Sung Kang as Han Lue, DK's former business partner and friend, he gives Sean a car to race Takashi, which Sean wrecks. As compensation, Sean works for him and Han in turn teaches him to drift and gives him a car to drive in Tokyo. Han believes that what kind of person someone is can be defined by the people he surrounds himself with, not his car or skills. After Takashi learns from his uncle that Han has been stealing money, he and Morimoto try to chase him and Sean, culminating in Han's car flipping over, leaking gasoline and causing the car to explode, killing him.
  • Brian Tee as Takashi/Drift King, Sean's enemy; also known as DK. Takashi first races Sean after he speaks to Neela, his girlfriend, and is scornful of Han for teaching him to race. Later, after he learns that Neela and Sean have been spending time together, Takashi beats him up, warning him to stay away from Neela; this causes her to leave him to be with Sean. Takashi later learns from his uncle Kamata that Han has been stealing from them, and angrily confronts him. In a dangerous car chase, he shoots at Han's car constantly, eventually causing it to flip over and explode, killing Han. To settle the score permanently, Sean races Takashi in his father's car; Takashi loses, and is forced to leave town.
  • Nathalie Kelley as Neela, Sean's love interest in the movie, who is also Takashi's girlfriend. She comes to know Sean through school, and as they spend time together, he learns that she, like Sean, is an outsider, not from Japan; Takashi's grandfather took her in a long time ago. After Takashi beats up Sean, she leaves him to be with Sean, claiming that he has changed. To avoid conflict, when Takashi confronts Sean and her at his father's house, she willingly goes with her ex; however, after Takashi loses to Sean and is forced to leave Tokyo, the two reunite, and she counts off Sean's race against Dominic.
  • Sonny Chiba as Kamata, Takashi's uncle, who learns that Han has been stealing money from him. After Han is killed, Sean visits Kamata with the money Han stole and offers to race Takashi one final time to settle their score, with the loser leaving town, to which Kamata agrees. Kamata keeps his word after Takashi loses, and they leave, with Sean becoming the new Drift King.
  • Leonardo Nam as Morimoto, Takashi's close friend, who confronts Twinkie after his iPod is broken. He later chases against Han and Sean with Takashi, eventually colliding with another car, only to die in the accident.
  • Brian Goodman as Major Boswell, Sean's father in the Navy, who Sean is sent to live with in Tokyo. He kicks Sean out of the house after he moves in with Han, but agrees to help Sean settle the score with Takashi, holding a gun to his head after he threatens Sean and giving Sean his Ford Mustang (7 walls) to race with in the final race.
  • Zachery Ty Bryan as Clay, the quarterback of Sean's school, who he races at the beginning of the film.
  • Lynda Boyd as Ms. Boswell, Sean's mother, who, fed up with moving Sean around, sends him to Tokyo, Japan to live with his father.
